A charity dog fun run is taking place at the Elveden Estate in July to raise money for charity.

It is being organised by Explore 4 x 4 with funds going to Our Special Friends, a charity that fills a gap in community care by providing a range of free support services to help those in need to continue to benefit from contact with animals during illness, bereavement and other difficult times in their lives.

It is provided through volunteers and by working in partnership with human health and social care, as well as vets and animal charities. It operates in the West Suffolk and Thetford area, but has plans to expand geographically as funding allows.

The all day event, due to be held on July 1, features a 5K woodland fun run or walk, along with optional obstacles for dogs.

Registration begins at 10am and set off will commence between 11am and 1pm.

Tickets for one dog owner and one dog is £15 with additional owners £10, additional dogs £5 or a family ticket for two adults and two dogs £40.

Today we can finally reveal the names of the people selected to be on our first ever Inspiring Women of Suffolk list.

This is a list that Suffolk should be proud of - 100 women who are positive role models for future generations, women who have achieved success in a diverse range of fields from business, the arts, sport and education to the third sector.

The list was put together by a panel of judges this summer after we asked readers for their nominations.

A Colchester woman accused of murdering a rough sleeper, whose badly beaten body was found in a car park, allegedly saw one of her co-defendants bite off the victim’s ear lobe and try to get him to swallow it.

Adriano Guedes, aged 65, of Kessingland, moved to England from Portugal more than 15 years ago and was admitted to hospital in 2014 after having a stroke.

A woman walking her dog along a footpath in Sudbury was confronted by a man who demanded her mobile phone.

Tributes have been paid to the former principal of Chadacre Agricultural College, John Paton Philip MBE, who has died at the age of 92.

The sea wall of an island off the coast of Suffolk is being lowered by almost half a metre to prevent it flooding in stormy weather.
